Photographer's Note

While not many people necesarilly know that this land of Transylvania really does exist somewhere on the Planet, many, like me, have there a homeland, it is a real region, part of today`s Romania.
Here is a visual glimpse of it from my winter journey back home. This photo depicts the city of Timisoara, part of downtown, the Metropolitan Orthodox Cathedral fronted by the statue of the legendary shewolf breastfeeding the founders of the Roman Empire: Romulus and Remus.
It is a commonly photographed scene but very few have managed to get it trough layers of fog at dusk with a flock of birds in the side and a bone cripping -21 degree Celsius cold.
Even though by some geo-historical standards this city named Timisoara is somehow at the limits or off limits of Transylvania (the incorporated or at times independent province of Banat)I think it does portray very well the perpetual eerie image the mythical land developed already.
